BR - Over the first few weeks of September, qualifying matches for the 2014 World Cup dominated the world of football. With just a few matches played by each team, the fixtures whetted the appetites of fans as they looked forward to the final tournament in Brazil.
So who should we expect to see in Brazil? And just how good is every team?
These are questions that FIFA has looked to constantly respond to with their ranking system. The idea is sound: provide a running point system (a la rankings in tennis) that evaluates teams' performances and rank them based on the output.
